The criteria to attempt NEET has being changed from the year 2018. Now, the board has removed the attempt bar for all NEET aspirants (as per the officials).

Aadhar card and Hall ticket is expected of the student to be taken to the exam center to write NEET. Pen is normally provided at the center itself.

Steps by NTA to improve NEET Scores 

National Testing Agency (NTA) has launched a ‘mobile app’ through which students can practice or take mock tests on their own computers or smart phones.  In order to ensure that no student is disadvantaged due to lack of resources, NTA has established a network of more than 4000 Test Practice Centres (TPCs) to acquaint the aspirants, especially those from rural areas with Computer Based Tests (CBTs). Students across the country can register themselves online at the NTA Website or ‘NTA Students App’ for visiting the TPCs.  All these services are provided to the students free of cost. The NEET based mock tests are been released soon for the benefit of Medical Students.
